Compliance for Homes and Small Workshops

The Nest Standards for Homes and Small Workshops and Nest Seal of Homeworker Wellbeing work together to ensure industry-wide transparency and compliance for production taking place beyond the four-walled factory.

Built and piloted in collaboration with brand pioneers including EILEEN FISHER, Jaipur Living, Maiyet, Patagonia, PVH, Target, The Children’s Place, and West Elm, Nest Compliance stands to revolutionize the industry by making homework a safe and viable option. Measuring compliance across a matrix of 130 Standards, the training-first program is tailored to address the wide degree of variation in decentralized supply chains, which may result from factors such as multiple layers of subcontracting, migrant labor forces, and broad geographic dispersal.

Like all Nest programs, Nest Compliance stands apart for its dedication to cultural sensitivity and handworker ownership in decision-making every step of the way. During the program’s pilot phase, Nest Compliance assessments were carried out in partnership with 42 artisan businesses across 7 countries.
